Barnet was Skin Care Network’s first clinic. Opened a decade ago, by a team of consultants who worked closely together in a specialist NHS setting.
At a hospital near our Barnet facility, they built one of the leading UK centres for dermatology and skin cancer. Their private clinic designed to ensure a high quality of care was available to all, on demand.
Comparing NHS and private treatment is partly about available resources and about meeting the logical expectations, or needs patients have.
They also wished to remove the barrier between medical and aesthetic treatment. Our skin is a vital organ of our body, also a visible reflection of our health and confidence.
Cosmetic care is about more than looks, medical support has aesthetic elements and vice versa. Ensuring the same level of expertise is constantly brought to both makes more sense than separating them.
Bringing together every aspect of skin care under one roof offers our patients unique benefits. Consultant dermatologists, cellular pathology in house, aesthetic specialists, ophthalmologists, paediatric care.
Leading London consultants on our staff are a prime route to specialist diagnosis and treatment. From skin cancer treatment and autoimmune diseases, to opthalmic, or facial reconstruction, traditional and laser surgery.
With an ethos based on equality of care, the same support is available for cosmetic procedures. The health of your skin and of you is the driver behind every treatment decision.
The care at any clinic you attend also depends on support staff. The reason our nurses are more than nurses, skilled in supporting consultants and in providing treatments.
Barnet clinic may have been serving London for a decade but has not stood still. State of the art equipment is available across our clinics, as are staff trained to use this.
Our latest acquisition, a confocal microscope, is the only one of the type in a UK private clinic. Providing an ability to look beneath your skin in microscopic detail, without a biopsy.
A complete range of medical and cosmetic laser treatment is available, for delicate surgery, or facial rejuvenation. Procedures such as ultherapy and photodynamic therapy are offered by dedicated staff.
The same principle applies to minor treatments, from chemical peels, to dermal fillers, to allergy patch testing. They don’t stand still either, ensuring patients are provided with the latest, high quality treatment matters.
The Ethos At Barnet
We have not been shy in highlighting the care we offer, for a simple reason. We want as many people as possible to know of this and for the finest support to be available to them.
A wish to share also extends to another aspect of our treatment. The leaders in any field appreciate they don’t know everything, working alongside the best in allied fields helps.
We make the support they offer accessible. Our North London clinic is recognised by all major insurers and if you are funding your own treatment, you will find costs are rational.
Neither is our care as such based on time. All the time needed is available, to consider your wishes and provide solutions. The staff at our Barnet clinic work here because they want to work with people.
